winter hush

it has been a nice and quiet snowy winter and i have been lucky enough to spend this time working on new projects and trying out new techniques. 2014 is going to be a great year working with new clients and i am thrilled that last year’s clients are now booking me again, it’s the best feeling.

i’m working on collaborating with some fantastic people too, new projects are being hashed out and i can’t wait to share them all.

many new posts are on their way, here is a preview of some of the things to come. enjoy!

THE MAX! i feel very lucky to have the opportunity to not only pursue photography full time, but to spend my days with this guy. i take LOTS of photos of my kid so it’s only right that there will be one or two blog posts coming up that are dedicated to that :)


LENS CHIMPING! i started playing around with a prism. i follow a photographer named sam hurd on facebook, he is incredibly talented and creative and he is kind enough to share techniques. i have become obsessed with lens chimping thanks to him. check out his post about this technique here. i may have taken apart one of max’s toys so i could use the lens inside.


MACRO! I invested in a new macro lens. i have taken so many photos with this thing that i feel completely overwhelmed with the amount of editing i have ahead of me! i can’t wait for summer and sitting in my gardens with the bees and bugs.


MUSIC! i am getting back out there, i’m rusty but it feels great to be documenting my favorite thing again. this time around with far less jameson. i started a tumblr as a blank canvas for sharing my music photography, link coming soon!


COLLABORATION! There’s some pretty amazing projects coming up, one or two of them with this super talented woman…stay tuned!

  1. So inspiring! It’s really all cocktails and dreams from here on out iceman.

    • It’s taking a lot of time for me to get a hang of it too, but this blog post from sam hurd was what got me interested and started. I hope that helps!

  2. Can I know what lens you are using for this lens chimping technique? I try to use 50 & 85 but all become like macro lens, the distance need very close up the subject just can get the focus point. Appreciate your advise.

    • for the photos here, I used a 50mm with a prism and it gave the double kind of look. I also had the same macro results when i used a convex lens over my 50mm camera lens. I shot a wedding last weekend and I tried using my 24/70 lens instead and my results weren’t exactly great. I’m heading back out this weekend with friends to just shoot and experiment, I’ll let you know if I get anything better. I’m thinking about taking sam hurd’s epic workshop so I can get this right!
